Giants and Jets fans join uproar over stadium naming rights bid by firm with Holocaust ties

Posted by Rodan on September 11, 2008

In a disturbing article I have read, It seems that a German company with ties to the Holocaust is getting the naming rights to the New Giants/Jets stadium.

Football fans and Jewish groups are outraged over the prospect of a new Giants and Jets stadium being named for German insurer Allianz because of its Nazi ties in World War II.

The company insured the Auschwitz death camp and had a chief executive serving in Hitler‘s cabinet. The company is on the short list of those vying to slap their name on the Meadowlands stadium in New Jersey via a lucrative sponsorship deal.

This is really sickening and I hope this is stopped.
